How to install MyCrypNet on GNOME®

If you want the installation in a Linux environnent with command lines, take a look here.

You must have a MyCrypNet access first. You can buy one here or ask a delegation to someone who bought one.

Step 1: Download and install the software

From a package repository. For “Debian-like”:

sudo apt-get install openvpn resolvconf network-manager-openvpn-gnome

Step 2: Download the settings file

Download the MyCrypNet.conf file and put it into a dedicated folder. MyCrypNet.conf

Make sure to keep this folder in a safe place on your disk.

Step 3: Download the key and certificate

Download the two settings files (vpn.cert and vpn.key) from the “Your apps” page or the “Delegated apps” page and put them together into the same folder as the MyCrypNet.conf file.

Step 4: Open the configuration interface

Go to the Gnome menu and select “VPN Off”.

Click on “VPN Settings”.

Step 5: Load the configuration

Add a VPN configuration by clicking on the “+” on the “VPN” section.

Select “Import from file…” and look for the MyCrypNet.conf file.

Sometimes GNOME® bugs and force you to save the configuration (by clicking on the “save” button) in order to make it work.

Step 6: Check the configuration

You should see the VPN configuration appearing on the “VPN” section.

Check the “OFF” switch to start the configuration. If the “OFF” goes back, you should open your configuration, click “save” then check the “OFF” switch again.
